2022 Creative Writing Summer School


This two-day intensive course is designed to give participants a taste of life in the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University, introduce you to tutors and current students, and offer opportunities to develop your own writing – and reading – in a lively and supportive environment. The programme will include a carousel of masterclass workshops, seminars and talks, delivered by practising writers and critics, with input from special guests.

Attendees can choose from a range of specialist sessions. These may include fiction, poetry, writing for children & young adults, scriptwriting, creative non-fiction, how to present your work for publication, performance skills, and talks/Q&As with industry experts. The full programme will confirmed and circulated in advance, and you will be asked to choose which sessions you would like to attend each day, which are all subject to availability. The programme will include on-campus and digital (distance learning) options across both days. You will also be asked to let us know, when confirming your session choices, if you have any specific learning or accessibility needs.

This course will run over two days, 23rd and 24th June 2022. For further information, including timetables and delivery modes, please contact [email protected].

This course is unaccredited and doesn’t carry any formal assessment or academic credits. The cost of attending is £250 per person.
